    Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights

    It has it's good points and its frustrating points, but it's certainly a step up from the first Juiced.

    Juiced 2 does not try to continue the game play style of the original. Instead, it takes a safer route, and goes with a style similar to that of the newer need for speed games. While there is no free-roam mode, progressi... Read Full Review
